There are many reasons why a man might choose to crossdress! Of course there's the standard DSM definition of a crossdresser as being someone with a 'mild' personality disorder...often prompted (so they say) by a slightly deprived sensual and tactile relationship with the mother especially. Though there is often a psychological reason why a man would want to dress in a woman's clothes (isn't there a psychological reason why someone might prefer red over green), there seem to be a very large number of crossdressers (often calling themselves 'CD' or TV -'transvestite'), who simply dress for the pure sensual pleasure of it. In the case of a bisexual male, crossdressing mjay be an aspect of the man wishing to literally adopt the feminine role in a bisexual relationship. Others crossdress as a form of play, and often do so with the encouragment and consent of their wives/partners. However, a great majority of crossdressers practice in what is called 'the closet' which is often a reflection of the refusal of a female partner to accept what she might perceive as non-masculine behaviour and is threatened by any hint of an activity of that kind in her male partner. There are many excellent organisations that offer advice and help to any crossdressers out there. Try for example, where you can chat with crossdressers (and sometimes their wives!), about the 'scene'. In an age of sexual and sensual 'liberty' and experimentation, I urge all crossdressers NOT to feel ashamed of their desires. One of the greatest religious mystics (and a Saint)..Augustine wrote, 'provided that you have love in your heart, you may do what you will'....

Why crossdressing is harmful?

There is nothing inherently harmful about crossdressing. The most harm to be found in crossdressing derives from other people's reactions about the crossdresser. For instance, while a crossdresser may be perfectly fine with crossdressing, they may still have feelings of anxiety, hatred, etc. because they know that other people would not approve of their crossdressing. Also, when crossdressing publicly, crossdressers may run the risk of being assaulted or otherwise harmed by onlookers who are not comfortable with seeing a crossdresser. As an aside - when females crossdress and bind their chest, over time, there can be some health concerns with breathing and ribcage constriction.

Knowing the difference woman and transvestite?

Transvestites are men or women who dress up to appear to be the opposite sex; there is purpose in transvestism (crossdressing) that requires intent. A man who wears women's jeans because they fit better and would buy men's jeans if they found some that fit is NOT crossdressing. A man who buys women's underwear when almost the same underwear but with a label "for men" is available especially cheaper, is crossdressing; it is the intent of "for women" to wear the other sexes clothes. Women can be transvestites. A woman can crossdress but we usually don't see it because women now have so many choices in masculine and femiinine clothing: a woman may wear a business suit and tie just to compete with the boys, or she may wear it because it is 'man's clothing' - the second is crossdressing.

How do you crossdress your bother?

Forced Crossdressing is related more to BDSM than crossdressing and transgenderism: it's part of fantasy and losing control. True transgenderism is based in gender (emotional issues) and not in objects. It's about being something all the time; not just when you are turned on. Forced crossdressing is not bad; it's just not to be confused with transgenderism they are miles and miles apart.
